I stayed at René's for 2 nights. I was received friendly by René herself. The Guesthouse is neat and clean and the rooms have everything that you need. Cupboards, TV, small fridge en-suite bathroom etc. The breakfasts are good. The only small negative is if the guesthouse is not full - there is no option for dinner.

Beautiful venue with excellent services and great food. The owners Rene and Apie welcome the Schools staff on the first night although it were very late. The interaction from the owners with the residence is highly appreciated

Stayed only one night here, but will strongly recommend Rene's Guest House. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the whole property is very neat. Breakfast was superb and included a lovely variety. Very safe for single travelers. Friendly hosts!

Very friendly people specially Apie and Rene. Supper and breakfast are also excellent. The only negative is the parking space, not enough space inside the premises. To park at the outside is a brake in risk.
